Question 2007 DRL disable different than 2006?

we're having a discussion on iwsti about trying to find a way to disable DRL's on 07's. What I've found so far is that the relay that controls DRL's on the 06 is not on my 07.

It may be that cars with HID's may not have their DRL's controlled the same way. For example, I found a diode (#b95 if you have a wire diagram) that seems to have an impact on the DRL's if I pull it.

BTW, this diode has 3 wires (G, GR, and GY) coming into it and it is taped to the relay that feeds the light on the glove box --the one with purple wires.

If I pull this diode, DRL's are off, but HID's don't work either. The small light above the DRL/brights is on, however.

I figure I'm close. Any help? BTW, I have pics if anyone wants to host.

I also have an 07 STI and I was wondering about that too. Do you have a link to the IWSTI thread?

Hey guys.. this might help us out! Some of the folks at LegacyGT.com have had the same problem and have seemed to find the fix. Perhaps our set up is similar to the 07 Legacy HIDs. Here is a link:

I don't think it's apples to apples. They are cutting a wire from their DRL module in order to keep their DRL's off. The only thing close we have (that's been found so far) is the diode that affects all the lights (except the DRL's that are above the HID's). There doesn't seem to be a DRL module on the 07.

I just want my HID's to turn off during the day. Can this be asking too much?

I don't have a voltmeter to see what wire gets how much power and when, so I'm at a standstill to see if this diode is any help in the first place.

06 sti's do have hid DRL's but all you have to do is unplug the module under the glove box near the door jam side of that area. sorry that 07's are not as easy. funny that they decided to make it harder on the 07's

I wonder if I take my car to the dealership if the service guys could give me a clue about where the DRL module is on the 07's and how to disable it.

Looking at the wiring diagrams nhluhr posted on iwsti: just locate the blue connector B280 underneath the center dash near the gas pedal, and cut & insolate both ends of the Green/Yellow wire A16 on that connector. I'll make some editted pics of this if people need.

mine is the same as previous years as well. my MY06 STI has HID DRLs, and all you have to do is unplug the module under/behind the glove box near the passanger side door jam area.

the MY07 is different huh?

Please do... I had an 05 Legacy GT and it was just so easy to do... crawl up under the driver side dash and disconnect. But now with this new 07 STI Ltd I don't see anything, and i have looked at the diagram on IWSTI.com, that I cun just unplug! If you can dumb this down as much as possible I would really appreciate it!

It will be about a week or so before I can get some pics up as I'm in Taiwan at the moment. If anyone has a 2007 Impreza in the portland area and wants to get this done, let me know. I'll be back in town after November 6th.

Hey man, if you find someone who wants this done to their 07, please please please take lots of pictures and create a write up for us over here on the East Coast. I got to get rid of these DRLs... Thanks in advance for your efforts!

the iwsti thread says that by cutting the GY wire on the diode and the relay worked. I have not confirmed.

looks like it's solved in 'Electrical & Lighting': http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show....php?t=1109279

the culpret is the GY from the diode and the relay (where the 06 DRL relay location was).
